I apologize if this has been aready said, but have you checked if your 
loopback interface is OK? I had a similar problem to yours, and it turned out 
that CUPS could not talk to the lo because I made a mistake when 
editing /etc/networks/interfaces. 

ifconfig should show something like this:

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Mask:
		[more stuff]

	The important field is "inet addr:". If it isn't there, the lo 
interface might be misconfigured. Try 

	ifconfig lo down
	ifconfig lo up

	And check CUPS in the System Settings again. It worked for me.

	Hope this helps,
